Frankfurt - Maintower

The Maintower in Frankfurt offers a spectacular view to the city of Frankfurt particularly to the banking district. For sorrow on this evening there was a lot of fog, but on the other hand the fog was responsible for a very special atmosphere. 

In Frankfurt there is the place of the European Central Bank (ECB). In front of the building around the sign of the euro the camp of "Occupy Frankfurt" is situated.

" I Muvrini" in concert

One of the most popular Corsican Bands is called "I Muvrini". On these days they are on tour in Germany. The sound in the church, the lyrics of the songs and the declarations to the songs gave this concert a really special touch for a magic evening with a lot of memories to Corsica.

The sound in the church was really fantastic. I Muvrini sang a lot of very different songs in several languages.
These videos can only show a little excerpt of the wonderful songs and very warm-hearted performance of I Muvrini.

"Hoher Peißenberg" - sunny island in the fog

On foggy days like today you have to climb the hills for having a view to the sun. The "Peißenberg" (988 m) in Bavaria shows you one of the most wonderful panorama in this region. The fog looks like a huge pillow and the Alps protrudes of the fog.

The wooden man can be seen on the top of the mountain near the "Gnadenkapelle" (engl.: chapel of grace).

"Bier- und Oktoberfestmuseum" in Munich

Located in one of the oldest houses of Munich near the "Marienplatz" this little museum is really a piece of jewellery. The angled building gives the exhibits a quaint atmosphere.

On the ground floor there are some paintings with historical scenes of drinking beer.

The museums shows many exhibits of beer mugs. These two are one of the most spectacular ones.

The charge of the gulid of the brewer is also exhibited.

The part of the museum which shows some relics of the Oktoberfest is characterized with a lot of posters and of course once again beer mugs.

This shows the way back to the street. The very steep steps are called "Himmelsleiter" (engl.: stairway to heaven).

If you want you can try a beer in this really cozy "Stüberl".

The way from Bellinzona to Chur (Switzerland)

On our way home from Italy we traveled through the Swiss Alps. The weather was really incredible. The mountains were shining in the sun with the colors of the autumn. Passing the tunnel of "San Bernardino" and the canyon of "Via Mala" some spectacular views are guaranteed.

Lugano (Ticino, Switzerland)

Situated at the lake Lugano is really a very nice town with beautiful old houses and a lovely promenade. During our way home from Italy we stopped there to have a walk and eat something. Lugano was enclosed a little bit to the fog but with wonderful views today.

Like many tourist towns Lugano has a "train" for carrying the people via the town.

Due to the balmy climate in the south of the Alps palms can be seen in this region.

Gulls can not only be seen at the sea...
